Evo Morales has declared himself a Marxist-Leninist, during an interview with Argentinian daily Clarín saying that that is no reason for a country to be expelled from the Organization of American States, as Cuba was:

“No se puede entender que por motivos ideológicos alguien sea expulsado de la OEA. Yo también soy marxista-leninista ¿y qué, me van a expulsar?”, subrayó Morales al diario Clarín, de Buenos Aires.

(my translation:) "One can not understand that anyone would be expelled from the OAS for ideological reasons. I am a Marxist-Leninist, too, so what? Are they going to expel me?"

Cuba was suspended from participation in the OAS in 1962. Through the Inter-American Commission of Human Rights, the OAS has repeatedly condemned the human rights situation in Cuba, urging the release of political prisoners.
